MIT has announced it will open up its campus information based
mobile software stack -
Several months ago, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology created the
Mobile Web Project in an attempt to provide up-to-date university
information for its faculty, students and visitors over mobile devices.
Early next year, Information Services and Technology (IS&T), the central IT
department at MIT, and the team responsible for the design, development and
maintenance of the software, plans to open source the code.
The MIT mobile site offers a staff and student directory, a campus map, the
shuttle schedule, an event calendar, class announcements for students,
emergency information, and status updates for many of MIT's tech services.
